Tutor Booking App

How Tutoring Applications Bridge the Gap Between Students and Tutors with Real-time Learning Experience?

Searching for expert tutors around a locality, checking their background, knowing their skills, and scheduling classes is a big deal for learners.

In this situation, launching a tutor booking app that makes the learners’ tutor hunting work easier, will be a profitable business for entrepreneurs. 

 Now, let’s discuss tutor booking application functions and how it helps tutors, students, and entrepreneurs to gain more returns from the investment for the application. 

Online Tutor Booking App: How It Can be Applied in the Education Industry?

A tutor booking application is an online platform that connects students searching for qualified tutors and tutors who are ready to offer tutoring sessions. The tutor booking application allows students to request expert tutors to schedule a live one-on-one session at their homes. 

On another hand, the application allows tutors to accept and reject the request for the session. This feature prevents tutors from mismatching their tutoring schedules. 

By scheduling sessions through tutoring applications, students will be able to attend live one-on-one sessions in the convenience of their homes with tutors. This scenario will create introverted students to open up with their tutors and improve the interaction between the tutor and students.

How a Tutor Booking App Can Infuse Inquiry-based Learning?

Inquiry-based learning is a student-centric approach. In this type of learning methodology, the tutors will let the students explore the subject materials, and try to come up with a solution to the question in the subject materials after approaching various methods. 

Though the inquiry-based learning methodology is the student-centric method of learning the students need a facilitator to support and guide them. The role of a tutor in this method of learning is different from the traditional way of teaching. 

Tutors will listen to the view, thoughts, and ideas of the students. And support and guide the students in the process of obtaining their results by approaching various methods. Despite this method being student-focused, the tutors also play an active role in the process of this learning method. 

So, hiring a qualified tutor for inquiry-based learning is essential. In such a scenario, the tutor booking applications with more user-friendly features will empower the students to hire qualified tutors for their tutoring sessions.
